2016-2017 – Our 24th Season

All concerts are at St Elizabeth’s Catholic Church, 10030 Third Street, Sidney, BC. Info and reserved door tickets available by calling (250) 480-1133.

Concert 1 • Beethoven, the Concerto Master. Sunday 2:30 pm, November 13, 2016

This concert features two soloists, Nancy DiNovo – violin, and Robert Holliston – piano, performing the much loved Beethoven Violin Concerto and the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4. This should be a terrific concert. We will be adding woodwinds, brass, and timpani to our regular string orchestra.

Concert 2 • Memories of the Old World, Sunday 2:30 pm, January 15, 2017

We welcome Konstantin Bozhinov – accordion, and Alberta Brown – flute, in an eclectic repertoire spanning nations and time periods, featuring Piazzolla’s Five Tango Sensations for accordion and string orchestra, and Vivaldi’s “La tempesta di Mare” flute concerto.

Concert 3 • Young Soloists with the SCO, Sunday 2:30 pm, March 12, 2017

Between 5 and 8 young soloists will perform with the orchestra.    A review from our 2012 Young Soloist Concert says it all:

“Nothing is more refreshing than attending a concert of young musicians. I can think of several reasons for this: their work ethic, their obvious talent, the total absence of artistic arrogance and swagger, the excitement equally shared between the performers and their parents, and the entire audience’s genuine wish for them to succeed. One has to make allowances for little glitches, but these were few and far between at the Young Soloists Concert.”

Concert 4 • Strings and Spring. Sunday, Friday 7:30 pm, May 19, 2017

We welcome spring with light 20th century English string orchestral music, and concertos of the Baroque and Classical era.
